Image analysis is common in many bio-medical research applications. In spite of the prevalence of a number of relevant tools, a large part of the analysis is still manual and extremely tedious. This limits the amount of data that can be analyzed and prevents drawing statistically relevant conclusions. The reasons for the existing computational tools to not perform satisfactorily in many applications are often driven by poor image quality, and this calls for developing advanced methods that would be able to overcome these limitations. There has been tremendous progress in image analysis in the last decade, building upon machine learning methods. A pressing question is how do we translate these methods from the computer science fields into application in biomedical domains? This workshop will focus on such issues. Biomedical applications bring their own challenges that these advance computing approaches will need to address. In this workshop, we will focus on a few of these problems, e.g., how to use machine learning when there is limited labeled data, how do we combine physics-driven approaches with data-driven methods, and how do we combine human feedback effortlessly into the learning paradigm.
